Why do you want to be in this program and why are you excited to be a part of it?
I feel like this program will give me the opportunity to grow personally as I become a better teacher and teacher leader. I also feel that in 13 years I have learned many things that are worth sharing with new teachers. There is a shortage of high quality physics teachers in this area. I would like to help increase the number of physics teachers in our metro Atlanta schools.
What qualities does a teacher leader possess that you would like to develop within yourself by the end of the program?
I believe a teacher leader is able to work with colleagues to fulfill the common goal. She collaborates well with her peers and fosters a productive professional learning community. I would like to have a strong group of metro Atlanta physics teachers working together on a regular basis.
